MAC Bronzing Powder Review

Bronzers make the world go around, well that’s my opinion anyway. The goal for me is to be as glowey as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, then I know I have done my job well. So over the years I have become a hoarder of bronzers.

I collect bronzers like that are going out of fashion but this MAC Bronzing Powder has been in my collection the longest out of all of my bronzers. It has been about 5 years since I first used this product and in that time I have tried near enough every shade that they have in their range and I have finally settled on a favourite… Matte Bronze.

This MAC Bronzing Powder is absolutely incredible on them days when I don’t want to wear much make up. I will apply a thin layer of foundation, a quick blot of Laura Mercier Translucent Powder then bronze up my face using this and I am good to go!

I always find it hard to find a decent bronzer. I either think they are too chalky in texture, they have shimmer or are orange. And I don’t know anybody in the world that chooses to look orange!

I like to apply this with a Real Techniques Bold Metals Powder Brush in the outer areas of my face, it is a big brush which isn’t too fluffy so it concentrates the product in one area. This brush also doesn’t pick too much product up so it never looks excessive.

I also find that when I pick this product up on my brush it feels like it is so finely milled that it just blends into the loose powder that I already have on my face. Then once my bronzing powder is on my face if I feel like I need a little extra something I will add a subtle contouring.

I have tried both the shimmery and matte bronzer and I have to say that I do prefer the matte bronzer myself as I am not a person that likes sparkle and highlight. If I was going to highlight I would probably just use the matt bronzer and use the Benefits Watts Up highlighter on the high points of the cheeks.

I do like this product but it isn’t for everybody as the shade range isn’t very large and some colours can look orange on the skin. I recommend going into a store and having a try before purchasing.
